Five Front Door Decor Ideas for Curb Appeal

A new front door color not only injects your personality into your home’s exterior, but it can create an entirely new atmosphere for your space. While we all love a door that seamlessly blends into our home’s structure, it’s also a good idea to create a look that stands out.

Not only does a gorgeous, unique exterior boost your home’s market value, but it keeps your home from blending into the rest on the block. We’ve come up with some of our favorite front door colors to help your home stand out from the crowd.

1. Red: Power, Passion and Protection

    At first glance, red may seem a bit much, but it’s quickly becoming the go-to exterior paint color for front doors of nearly all home styles. The color red is known to symbolize power, passion and strength, which is a great way to show off your personal style and bold choices.

    We recommend using dark gold hardware and minimal decor to help create a standout look. Tip: Red doors look especially beautiful on cool, medium-gray homes with white trim and houses featuring warm, dark tones like rich brown with metal cladding.

    2. Blue: Soothing, Serene and Satisfying

      Blue doors rarely make their debut outside, but as an exterior color, blue is soothing and tonal. Aiding in curb appeal, the color blue is often found in some of the most beautiful things on Earth: the ocean, the sky or maybe even your favorite sports team’s jerseys. Blue is serene yet poignant, which makes it an excellent choice for a front door. Blue doors are an excellent addition to your exterior look, especially if your home is brick with a neutral trim or light and natural with weathered features.

      3. Black: Elegant, Easy and Exclamatory

        While black might not be your first choice when considering a new exterior door, hear us out. Black is extremely versatile and can be both a neutral and a dramatic accent color. Black helps to hide aspects of your entry that you might not care for, while still highlighting your front door to the rest of the cul-de-sac. Black front doors are especially extraordinary when featured on homes with light, warm exteriors or dark, neutral coloring.

        4. Purple: Regal, Rare and Romantic

          The color purple has the ability to be soft and soothing or bold and boisterous, depending on its shade and where it’s placed. Some might say that purple is one of the most versatile shades for an exterior color palette, and we’d have to agree. The entry to your home should be attention grabbing, and what better way to do so than with a lovely shade of lavender or a gracious shade of grape?

          A light gray home is best complemented by a deep, dark purple for the perfect balance of restraint and regality. If your home is on the darker side, a medium gray, perhaps; we suggest opting for a saturated purple with a hint of red to warm up the exterior of your home and make it that much more inviting.

          5. White: Clean, Composed and Calm

            If your style is more neutral than statement-making, consider going for a classic color. White front doors make any entryway look clean and simple, and are the perfect way to differentiate your exterior from your neighbor’s. White doors look gorgeous on nearly every style of home, from cool and contemporary to buttoned-up and traditional.

            With so many looks to choose from, your new front door is bound to give your home an instant refresh. Which color palette are you leaning towards?
